The 2017 Nissan Armada pricing has been announced.
The base model is priced much higher than the outgoing model but it brings some significant upgrades to justify the price tag.
Compared to the previous model, the new Armada priced at $45,395 and it is nearly $6k more than what the company quoted for its last generation model. However, if you are ready to go for it, the 2017 Nissan Armada offers a SV 2-wheel drive model which is integrated with the company’s proprietary Nissan navigation system.
On the inside, the car is equipped with a large 8.0-inch infotainment system. It makes it easy to browse through your collection of movies, music and other content while on the go. The front seats support heating capability and the car uses a 13-speaker surround sound system provided by Bose audio.
Next in the lineup after the SV model is the SL priced at $50,145. The top of the trimline Platinum is quite expensive based on how you look at it. It costs $58,085 but still uses a two-wheel drive system. Upgrading to a four-wheel drive system will set you back by $2,900 and the additional cost is always worth it when going for AWD. The upgrade boosts the overall performance of the model, be it a SUV, truck or a coupe and offers a smooth ride irrespective of terrain conditions.
All the SUV models in the Armada series is powered by a 5.6-liter Endurance V8 petrol engine. The powertrain is capable of delivering up to 390 horsepower and offers 401 lb feet of torque. The numbers are bit higher than the outgoing model, 73 horsepower and 16 lb feet torque higher to be precise. The engine is mated to a seven speed automatic transmission system. The towing capacity of the pickup truck is what sets it apart. It can tow up to 8,500 pounds irrespective of the model you go for.
An around view monitor is incorporated into the vehicle as part of the safety measure. It can detect moving objects and automatically brake or do other actions to prevent a collision. Safety features include blind sport intervention system, predictive forward collision warning and backup collision intervention. With so many of them, it’s hard to collide into another vehicle. The pricing of the new Armada is almost on par with the Infiniti QX80 and the features are nearly similar. It’s purely based on individual preference.
